According to this tweet from Matt Trent of WBRZ, it sounds like Ed Orgeron was bringing “girlfriends” to practice and was letting their kids participate in some of the drills.

Now, what Coach O wants to do in his personal life is completely up to him. But when a team is struggling as badly as LSU has over the last two seasons, this is probably not the kind of thing you need at practice...

Prax? Too lazy to spell the proper word out?

I can't imagine this being true. Yeah, I get it - O obviously wasn't always thinking clearly or team first - but if there aren't pictures of this or people willing to put their names to something like this then I just don't believe this is true.

Agreed. This sounds like something where he let them come to practice and watch, and then they threw a football around after

Did any of these "children" out-perform the LSU football team in these drills? If so, can they suit up and play?

How scared is the local media to not report any of this until AFTER Coach O is basically terminated?

Practice is filmed from multiple angles. There should be video if it happened.

More hit jobs from LSU because the optics look bad to the outside...

The real travesty is that Woodward still has a job.

How do the optics look bad? No one even expected O to have the job this long, probably not even himself if he's being honest with himself. However, you can't do some of the things he did when you're a head football coach at a school as prominent in the sport as LSU. Also, you could clearly see the teams regression happening before your eyes. It's like after the championship, his priorities changed. Not only that, he had made some terrible hires and it appears not very many coaches want to work for him. I think it's not a reach to say it's partially because he's meddling in things he said he wouldn't. Also, he should have got rid of James Cregg after his first or second year. That's probably the thing that hurt O the most, his loyalty to Cregg. The guy was a shite OL coach and an even worse recruiter. I don't even know if there's a starter, or even decent backup player, on the team that Cregg was the primary recruiter for. There's also the lack of him taking responsibility for the direction the team was going. He would constantly throw players under the bus. Which, that's not a good look when the coaching has been as bad as it has the last couple of years. There's a lot more things that you can point to as to why O doesn't have a job and I wouldn't say that any of them have the optics of making LSU look bad. Woodward gave O the rope and he hung himself with it. And, don't be fooled, a lot of it is because of his off the field issues. LSU football has been under a microscope because of all the allegations surrounding the program. The last thing you need in that situation is your head coach, who's probably in a role with essentially as much influence as the LA governor because of how our state functions, being a playa and potentially opening up the university to more scrutiny and even more lawsuits. I believe LSU could have let him go with cause and not have to pay him anything, but I think it's best the way they're doing it. And, they probably are releasing some things. Maybe it didn't go down exactly like this report is saying, which I'll add I think somewhere this story for fricked up or exaggerated some, but I do think there's a lot he was doing that is probably similar to things like this report, minus all the kids doing drills. That just seems like some telephone game bull shite.

It may be true but to what degree. Rumor, innuendo, and speculation is all there is at this point. I feel for the next head coach. He better be able to walk on water.

Or just be able to keep his dick in his pants at practice.

Lol yeah thats why shrimp boat captain is getting canned, he can't walk on water....clown

Jumbo isn't the answer and never was and he never will win a natty at tx A&m. But Kendal briles or some other bright minded person may be the answer hmmmmm ??
